About

About the Wine

The Lightfoot & Sons Myrtle Point Chardonnay is a classic example of a family winery just doing things right.

The Lightfoot family has worked their Chardonnay in the vineyard into a lovely place. It's a full-bodied style, with great use of French oak. Flavour and balance is put at a premium, and they do it just right.

It's a good value, full flavoured Chardonnay from a small family producer. Great stuff.

About Lightfoot & Sons

Rob and Tom Lightfoot are the eponymous sons, being the second generation of the Lightfoot family, and now running their estate vineyards in the lovely Gippsland Lakes region of Victoria.

Since the first vineyard planting in 1995 on their Myrtle Block farm, the family have carefully tended small plantings of mostly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with some Shiraz and Cabernet also present.

Good rainfall, cooling coastal breezes and the famed terra rossa over limestone soil, make the Lightfoot terroir ideal for producing wines of character and flavour. They are also crazy good value.

Halliday Wine Companion

"Such an enjoyable, easy-to-drink wine but with plenty of definition and complexity. Lemony freshness infuses white nectarine and a touch of cedary spice from the oak – 10 months in a mix of barrel sizes (15% new) and perfectly integrated. It feels light and breezy across the palate, then some creamy lees kicks in to bolster it out and lively acidity ensuring the finish lingers." - Jane Faulkner (Halliday Wine Companion)

    My go to Chardonnay. Slightly oaky, minerally and deep in complexity. The way Chardonnay should be!

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
